Rising health costs: Do they change your view of health-care reform?

Health-care reform signed by Presisdent Obama earlier this year is set to hike costs, according to a new government report. It says costs under reform will be slightly higher than they would otherwise.

"By 2019, the average American will spend $13,652 on health care, according to the report," Monitor reporter Laurent Belsie writes. "Without reform, the average would be slightly lower: $13,387 per person. They now spend an average $8,389."

Despite these expected higher costs, do you support the broad goals of health-care reform as defined by Mr. Obama and congressional Democrats? Or is this report further evidence in your mind that reform may harm more than it helps?
